The HUIT Survey is the only regular survey conducted by the ABS which collects statistics on household and personal use and access to computers and the internet. However, other statistical surveys and the Population Census contain selected indicators which are comparable to the HUIT Survey and these comparisons indicate that the HUIT survey outputs give a reasonable indication of real world expectations and events. For example, rates of household access to broadband internet published in this release align with the ABS' Internet Activity Survey, while rates of household access to the internet released in the 2006-07 HUIT align with statistics released in the 2006 Population Census.

While the ABS seeks to maximise consistency and comparability over time by minimising changes to the survey, ongoing survey review has adjusted to the changing needs users of Information and Communication Technology statistics. This review has mainly resulted in increasing detail of data (for example, type of broadband connections) being made available to users.
